In-house Recruiter – Fluent French Speaker – Montréal Technology/Finance

Who we are and what we're looking for:

We are Adaptive, a successful and growing software consultancy and we’re now looking for a talented in-house recruiter to join our team. Whilst the finer details of the role are as below, what we’re looking for is someone with solid technical recruiting experience, a focus on an excellent, efficient candidate experience, superb interpersonal skills, brilliant team work and a ‘roll your sleeves up and pitch in’ attitude.  We look for high quality developers, project managers, BA’s and UX staff to join our growing team. 

You will be part of a distributed recruitment team and will work collaboratively with your US and Europe-based recruiting team and partner with colleagues across our business to drive efficient, effective recruiting processes. You'll be focussed on Montreal recruitment but will work internationally on recruitment for our London, Barcelona and New York offices. 

You will have:

  • Experience of a wide range of recruitment strategies with the most appropriate and cost-effective methods of advertising and recruiting;
  • Experience of technology recruitment, the market and a network of high-calibre people within that market;
  • Decent knowledge of finance/software development (enough to get by in an introductory conversation at least) and an interest in learning more to build a great rapport with candidates;
  • Experience of the full candidate recruitment lifecycle and the confidence to make direct approaches to candidates;
  • Ability to properly engage with candidates and build warm, positive relationships based on trust and respect;
  • Ability to multitask, quickly assess business situations and prioritise accordingly;
  • Ability to work on your own initiative and not afraid of raising issues, suggesting improvements etc;
  • Knowledge of provincial employment laws regarding recruitment advertising, candidate interactions (storing notes on candidates, resumes etc.);
  • Experience of salary negotiations;
  • An authentic and honest approach, not a corporate drone;
  • Tact, discretion and experience of dealing with confidential data.

You will be:

  • Working collaboratively with your recruiting colleagues;
  • Building and maintaining strong relationships internally; 
  • Writing job specs in collaboration with your technical colleagues and producing exciting and attention-grabbing ads;
  • Building and maintaining strong relationships with active and passive candidates;
  • Market mapping specific employers where we can find excellent candidates;
  • Creating innovative, effective candidate sourcing solutions, streamlining recruitment processes and constantly evaluating and iterating on your approach;
  • Building and maintaining a pipeline of quality candidates;
  • Engaging with hiring managers to build the right interview process for each role;
  • Speaking with candidates to screen them and to sell the Adaptive opportunity;
  • Arranging phone and in-person/Zoom interviews and working with your recruitment colleagues to continually optimise this process;
  • Continuing our push for quality interview feedback data;
  • Tracking candidate progress through the process and ensuring a positive and timely candidate experience;
  • Driving consistency and fairness, and advocating for your candidates;
  • Promoting our referral programme internally and prioritising all referrals;
  • Benchmarking salaries and offering guidance on appropriate compensation packages;
